No More

4.1 / 5

Words & Music: Don Robertson Hal Blair

No more do I see the starlight caress your hair
No more feel the tender kisses we used to share
I close my eyes and clearly my heart remembers
A thousand good-byes could never put out the embers

Darling I love you so and my heart forever
Will belong to the memory of the love that we knew before
Please come back to my arms, we belong together
Come to me let's be sweethearts again and then let us part no more.

No more do I feel the touch of your hand on mine
No more see the lovelight making your dark eyes shine
Oh how I wish I never had caused you sorrow
But don't ever say for us there is no tomorrow

Darling I love you so and my heart forever
Will belong to the memory of the love that we knew before
Please come back to my arms, we belong together
Come to me let's be sweethearts again and then let us part no more.

Just like It's Now Or Never, Surrender and a few more, enterprising lyric writers set new words to an old melody, with No More they used the same formula and come up trumps. No More is a good song too, and worthy of a place on one of Elvis' best soundtrack albums

One of the few songs of the soundtrack I actually like (not enough to enjoy the soundtrack as is thou).

Always liked this one. Not sure which version I prefer. The version from 1973 is just as good as the master from 1961. That´s what I think

well, he caught a song and a wave literally spoken. I heard my father whistling it a lot in the early 70's. he sang that "La Paloma" as it is called the original song int the fifties at his village.

Yes a standout song on the soundtrack along with one or two others.

A really good song that stood the test of time from 1961 to 1973 and continues to stand on its own today. I love the momentum in both the vocal delivery and the music.

Very good LP anyway & film showing us Elvis' rocking style with "Rock A Hula Baby" & "Beach Boy Blues"

A good track with Elvis in exellent voice from his 1961 LP and movie "Blue Hawaii". Elvis shows the tender quality of his voice with this one, as well as the power in his voice (especially with the last line and note). Just one of the many fine tracks on a great soundtrack LP that really captures the feeling of Hawaii ( Later LP's like "Harum Scarum" and "Paradise, Hawaiian Style" would try to capture the feeling of the middle East and Hawaii respectively, but come up severely lacking). Yes there were a couple of silly tracks in "Blue Hawaii" ("Ito Eats" and "Beach Boy Blues"), but the other 12 songs range from good to some of his best ("Can't Help Falling In Love" and "Hawaiian Wedding Song").

This is such a stellar song and I love the entire "Blue Hawaii" soundtrack album and the entire "Blue Hawaii" motion picture.

I am a great fan of Elvis Latino and this is another track that allows him to excel with the genre. Probably in the top 3 tracks of the strong Blue Hawaii album, using the La Paloma melody.

Elvis sings it perfectly, but I never liked this song much.

Beautiful delivery by Elvis. The song did well as a single in EU back in the day! Maybe the very best soundtrack album of them all! And I actually still play the album when the mood strikes me!

Middle of the road song from the movie which started his downfall. Nothing to write home about. 3-stars.

Don Robertson always wrote great ballads for Elvis and this is no exception. I love Elvis's Latin flavored recordings and this would have benefited from the instrumentation used in the "Fun In Acapulco" sessions and would have added quality to that soundtrack. It was recorded some 18 months earlier and is one of the better tracks of the very successful "Blue Hawaii" album. In reality the commercial success of "Blue Hawaii" helped establish the soundtrack formula that had a negative effect on Elvis's career as it all started going downhill after that. 4.5 stars for the song and 4 for the album

Nice solid song from the Blue Hawaii soundtrack. His voice is great in this, showing his incredible range. I also enjoy the 1973 version as well.

The early 60's voice with perfect control, phrasing and timbre. I'd say the '73 version is a bit warmer and more tragic, however I love both versions. And btw it's better to come up with English lyrics than to make a mess out of a foreign language. Amazing how some acultural people don't see the artfulness of this tune. 5 stars.

This would have been a Uk #1 had been released in '62, but then the others that were release got to #1 anyway

Good performance by Elvis. For me this is a song that sticks in my head for awhile after I hear it. He sure as hell did a lot worse songs during the movie years so this one gets four stars.
